Kyle’s Pick: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State
The Lions could go a few different directions here, but I think that taking the best defensive back in the draft will be the best option for them. Detroit needs a play-making corner to take advantage of the pressure that Suh and company put on opposing quarterbacks.

Dan’s Pick: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
With Gilbert off the board, Detroit may turn to another major position of need and take Lewan to shore up a shaky offensive line. Lewan really helped his draft stock in Indy at the Combine, and off the field concerns aside, he may just be the most talented offensive lineman in this year’s draft.
